 Engeset, Bjarte


There was a particularly rich vein of Nordic writing for the violin between the years 1910 and 1930. In this recital Henning Kraggerud, an exemplary stylist lauded for his Sibelius and Sinding concerto disc, Naxos 8.557266 (CD) and 6.110056 (SACD) ‘Kraggerud’s performance is superb throughout’ – Classics Today.com, explores this memorable repertoire. It ranges from Halvorsen’s folk-flecked Norwegian Dance to Stenhammar’s passionate Sentimental Romances. Late romanticism floods Sinding’s Abendstimmung whilst Sibelius’s Six Humoresques remain a masterpiece of the genre. The earlier works of Ole Bull illustrate the brilliance and panache of ‘The Nordic Paganini’.

 "... Kraggerud is an expressive player who varies his tone to match each composer ... The Darlana ensemble and Engeset supply polished, alert, supportive accompaniments. The recorded sound is excellent ..."

Lawrence Hanson - American Record Guide - January/February 2013


"...Kraggerud is a major talent, with a rich, beautiful sound, and he deserves to be more widely known. Any violin fancier should enjoy this CD very mcuh."

Raymond Tuttle - Fanfare - November/December 2012


"...I can’t imagine the music on this disc being better played. Henning Kraggerud is no doubt one of the foremost violinists in the world today. He is eminently well accompanied by Dalasinfoniettan under its then chief conductor Bjarte Engeset. The recording quality is excellent and the liner notes by Harald Herresthal are illuminating. A must for every lover of romantic violin music."

                             Recording of the Month
"This fabulous recording features lesser known violin repertoire, played with a keen advocacy by soloist Henning Kraggerud and Dalasinfoniettan... The recording itself is truly excellent, the soloist well integrated into the sound-picture. The engineers have fully captured the room’s warm ambience without any loss of clarity and there is a good front to back perspective. Notes are excellent and informative ... I look forward to more recordings from these performers."
